it's bull, i bet you any money that ferrari arranged for that as they did/could not arrange for someone else to drive the FXX, due to whatever bullshit reason, There is no way that Jeremy would allow a german (of all the possibilities) to be part of the show... he shits on everything german, except for the e90 m3 (4dr)...

I'm 99.2% sure that Shumi is not the Stig!

Doesnt look like Stig,and no way Schu going to be driving the cars all over the world with his schedule he has in life.It was a nice promotion for the show though...Damn he drives a Fiat 500 Abrath as a everyday car?.Probably the exotics is for weekends only.He still is the highest paid commercial spokesman in Europe.

I agree, they just wanted to make absolute certain that their cream of the crop gets to the top and damn well stays there.

I totally agree that this was just a 'guest appearance', but it's still a great promotion nonetheless...

Isn't that list only meant for street legal cars? I am 99.99% sure the FXX isn't street legal.

Like they said in the video, not only is it not street legal, you can't even take it out of Maranello if you bought one. I guess they can claim that it technically COULD be street legal because it'll probably clear a speedbump. But yeah this is just Ferrari covering their reputation (they can't have their best of the best rated below a car maker from Ikea and a Gumpert...).

I think they only ran it because they got Shumi to drive it. If you got that opportunity to do that on your TV show, I think you would bend the rules.

Yeah I just watched the end of the episode where they drop another "bombshell." It kinda makes sense, they wouldn't get the FXX otherwise.

I guess you don't watch the show enough, Jeremy praises AMG cars like no tomorrow, he loves Mercedes.

the way I understood it is that he was the stig only for that episode. As I understand, the only black FXX ever produced is his, hence why he drove it.
